Robert Downey Jr. tops the highest-paid actors list once again. The “Iron Man” and “Avengers” star has done it three times in a row. He was ranked highest paid actor in 2013, 2014 and latest 2015 list by Forbes.

Downey earned an estimated $80 million from June 2014 to June 2015. The success of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” largely contributed in it. The actor has a profit share deal with Marvel. He will get a lucrative profit from all those movies in which he will appear as Tony Stark/Iron Man.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” was one of the highest grossing films of all-time, making more than $1.3 billion worldwide. 

Jackie Chan lands on second spot with an estimated $50 million. The veteran actor beat out the likes of Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and Tom Cruise. Chan’s movie “Dragon Blade” did well at box office and racked in $120 million in China alone. 

Vin Diesel climbs up to third spot with $47 million. Last year, he was nowhere in the list. Now he is at third place thanks to the massive success of “Furious 7”. The seventh installment is the fourth highest grossing film of all-time with $1.5 billion. Vin Diesel is followed by Bradley Cooper, Adam Sandler and Tom Cruise. 

For the first time, three multimillionaire Indian superstars cracked the highest-paid actors list. Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar are at 7, 8 and 9 places respectively. 

Mark Whalberg, Dwayne Johnson, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Channing Tatum and Chris Hemsworth rounded out the top 15.
